Virginia Woolf

Today would have been Virginia Woolf's birthday. Google have chosen to honour the great novelist and feminist by make her their doodle of today, so I thought I would post my photographs taken at her home in Rodmell. The beautiful Monk House. 
I visited it a couple of times last year. It has such a warm and peaceful ambiance about it. The gardens are stunning and the house is full of amazing paintings by her sister Vanessa Bell and other members of the Bloomsbury group. 
Whilst we were there they had someone from the local amateur dramatic society perform from her last noel 'Between the Acts' , needless to say it just made the whole experience of being there even more immersive. 
I highly recommend you visit, especially if you are local to Lewes
